Razer mices dillema...

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
Hey there all.

I'm about to upgrade my old Logithech MX1000 mouse to a Razer one. I spent some time exploring the market of Razer mices availble right now and after seen some reviews I got myself stuck in a dillema choosing between the Razer Deathadder 2013 and the Razer Taipan Expert Ambidextrouse mouses.

In my neck of wood two of them is coming with the same price tag so money doesn't have any weigh here. I'm currently playing ARMA 3 and my main goal is to get me a mice that will satisfy my playing needs. As far as I understand I'd better go with the Taipan as it have 8200 DPI unlike the Deathadder with only 6400 DPI, but is more DPI always better..?

What do you think I should choose?

p.s. There is also an option that I'll get me the Razer Mamba 4G 2012, but I'll need to throw some more money on it so it's doesn't get easier to choose...

More DPI is not always better. In fact most Pro shooter players use below 2,000 dpi.

If you are going to get a Razer, i'd definately go with Deathadder.

Iv got a deathadder and only negative I can say about it is the cord braid has rubbed through where it touches the desk.
DPI wise I find myself turning the sensitivity down in a few games.

I wonder what is the minimum DPI I can get with the Taipan as there is an option to lower the DPI of the mouse?

the minimum is probably 100 dpi for every razer mouse. in my 3.5g deathadder's software, it gives me a slider to go from 100-3500 dpi.I have it set at 500.

generally speaking, the negative acceleration you're going to have when you have a higher dpi is going to hurt your accuracy much more than a lower dpi. Although there are a lot of factors to a have your mouse sensor accurate to the pixel, i can tell you that i don't need a dpi above 500 to do so. DPI is primarily a marketing statistic.

Thanks for the answer. Helped a lot to know that the min dpi is 100. The software you are using is synapse 2.0?
I think I will go with the Deathadder 2013 in the end...

Ok, it seems like I found a perfect mouse that sweets my need as a gamer. In fact, I already ordered it. It's the Razer Naga 2014 edition.

I had to use the proxy service to order this one from Razer because I leave in Israel and they didn't ship here (that was the main reason I didn't checked the Razer official site store from the beginning...)

From the review I saw, this mice is perfect for me. It's combining all of the small things that I found useful in other mices from all kind of companies: it's have the curve shaped side buttons, which is now mechanicles and it's perfect, they made the mouse bigger than the previous Naga model (exactly what I need as I have quite big hands), it's made out of they'r new special plastic instead out of rubbery material, still have that ergonomic shape which gets more and more positive feed's about and the mouse is wired and comes with the 4G double laser system.

Now all that's left is to wait for it arrive...
